NATURAL DISASTER BS*
note: this book was free when I downloaded, and free last night when I added this note. A better read than the regular semi-auto porn survivalist stuff out there. Oh, I could pick it apart all day long. Saddle bags big enough to hold an AK and a five gallon water jug? Really? Gas is bad years after the pandemic, but still plenty of carbine ammo? Seriously? But, since it is much better than most, and it was free, I enjoyed it. Only recommended if still free. Then, if you can live with the logistic concessions needed for the fast pace plot, you might decide his others are well worth the money. First in a series click here
I do not care for natural disaster preparedness, Sam I Am. I do not care for twisters or fires, tidal waves or especially attacking braves ( okay, my verse is suffering today, without my green eggs and ham ). Yes, sure, preparing for natural disasters is a bonus when you get ready for civilization collapse, but what really chaps my ass is when natural disasters become the focus and justification for prepping. By their very nature, that means you then only prepare short term. And you see this all the time. Prepper publications, so afraid of offending any damn buddy, their sphincter clenching at the PC thought crime, or far worse offending an advertiser who controls the purse strings, don’t even try to scare their readers ( when I first started publishing my paper mail ‘zine, I was trying to branch off into microfiche publishing. There were a lot more used readers for sale cheap twenty years ago. The people that I was going to pay to print the Army manual on improvised explosives refused to do so, claiming issues from the just then OK City bombing. Since that time, I go out of my way to offend everyone in one way or another ).
And I’m not talking about those Fear Porn sites like The Economic Collapse Blog. They try to make an old granny crossing the street and stubbing her toe on the curb an indicator of the apocalypse. I’m talking about NOT soft selling the potential problems out there. Compared to even a ginormous earthquake, a systematic collapse is far more serious. At least with an earthquake supplies will come in from elsewhere. But all the pussy preppers are focused on the natural disasters as if they were the ONLY reason to prep. Like with Glen Beck. He only wants you to buy freeze dried foods to help out natural disaster victims. The Yuppie Survival Scum sites think fracking oil is the new energy independence and that Obama or the UN trying to take your semi carbines is the worse that can happen. Knowing there are less Europeans in the entire NATO contingent than there are minority gang members in L.A., I suppose there needs to be a giant tsunami coming to get you to buy a FLIR scope so the ad revenue doesn’t dry up. Yes, I know I shouldn’t complain. If you go to such sites, you know the Kool Aid you are expected to drink. It still chaps my ass, however.
Lots of things chap my ass, or haven’t you noticed? If nothing else, I rant and rave with the best of them. Tired of hearing about that? Tough offal. If I didn’t hate, you wouldn’t have much to read here. If you don’t hate, you accept the status quo. If you don’t hate, you don’t fear. Embrace the hate. Just not the hate of an earthquake. I mean, sure, if you want to move, fine. Hate away. I would indeed fear the New Madrid quake as a mean SOB liable to do far more damage than a target rich nuclear attack. But that is why I don’t live there. I live in a quake area, but the things will most likely stay minor. We have flash floods, but that is nothing compared to the East and their excess rainfall flooding things. It isn’t a hurricane. Mostly I live where I do to avoid excess people, but an added bonus is the mild natural disasters. But while living in Florida, I didn’t prep for hurricanes. I did for Y2K, which was far more scary.
You shouldn’t move from California because The Big One will wipe out millions of people ( after the water infrastructure is ruined, let alone the roads ). You should leave because a communist government will take all your earnings while disarming you and refusing you permission to arm or defend yourself, AND the place is butt hole to elbow neck deep in people. And, just coincidentally, a big earthquake might kill them all. Just the crowds and government should prompt you to exit quicker than is decent. Which is what the Yuppie Scum guru’s tell you also, because it is good advice. But that is their sole argument whether they include the quake or not. My argument is that even if a quake never happens, the crowds will kill you. And you can’t arm yourself, nor can you prepare adequately because of the taxation. And the crowd will kill you because the energy crisis will make a desert full of millions without food or water a death trap. If you JUST stopped at natural disasters or bad government, you’d think you could easily prep for that. A few months of canned goods and big water tank, plus extra FLIR scopes ( FLIR scopes can be thought of as the holy grail of Yuppie Prepping, so they must be able to solve any problem ) and AR magazines. But if you knew the system was almost at the Waterfall Collapse tip over point, you wouldn’t stay in Cali, would you?
Focusing on natural disaster soft sells danger. Not enough to get you to put off buying that scope, but enough to keep you in the rat race as a cubicle warrior. In its own way, you have to admire the skill it took to achieve that balance. Enough fear to consume expensive prepper items but not enough to give up your mega-urban corridor job. If you were smart and believed in systematic collapse you’d take a huge pay cut, cut up all the credit cards and move to a small town. Which a lot of you, my loyal minions, are. But I wonder how many who read of the Tri-States are. Natural disaster preparednous is a disservice to preppers everywhere, who are now living with a false sense of security. Oh, I don’t believe the guru’s are stupid or evil. But I do believe they believe their own bullspit. No where near as bad, except for the end result. Earthquakes, bite my dingus.
